My Accessories and Makeup Collection!


     So, this is my first blog post and I thought it would be fun to share my accessory and makeup collection with whomever out there wants to see it. I have been collecting these items for years and I am not trying to brag (just in case anyone thought so). I really love looking at other people’s collections of various things I thought it would be nice to share mine. I took quite a few pictures so you could see everything (and because it was fun!).



This is my bureau where I initially kept all my accessories until my collection grew a little…


Headbands!


Here's some closer pictures of some of the stuff on the top of my bureau.



Those Mariah Carey earrings form Claire's used to be my favorite earrings because they were the biggest pink chandeliers I could find! lol



I keep three jewelry boxes on my bureau. This is the one on the right and it contains random things I didn't want or need to display.



The one in the center is mainly to hold earrings and random things and has two drawers at the bottom.


The wooden box on the left contains some more jewelry (costume and real).


I keep all my perfume on a glass oval thing I found at A.C. Moore. I have Vera Wang Princess (front center, my favorite!), Paris Hilton Can Can (front left), Betsey Johnson (front right), a Baby Phat perfume (back left), a perfume from Bath & Body Works (behind Princess), Britney Spears Fantasy (back right), and Hilary Duff With Love (back center).I love my Coco Chanel neckalce I found at a flea market! :) Strawberry Necklace! (Claire's)
On top of this box, I keep some nail polish, a body spray, a bunch of rings (real & costume), some jewelry in boxes, and my Mickey bracelet from Disney World!



I love this pink ring, it's so adorable!




I keep a cluster of bracelets on the right side of my bureau because it's cute...and because I ran out of places to put them! haha! (They're from Forever 21)

I keep a bunch of my flower hairclips in a little basket here.

This is a purple basket that contains a lot of body sprays and I piled a bunch of things on it like cute pens, bangles, my Disney necklace bag, etc.

This is one of my favorite peices I own mostly because I adore anything Disney, especially the castle, and because it's sparkly and pretty.

Here's the first drawer at the bottom of the jewelry box in the middle of my bureau. I keep a few necklaces, earrings, etc in there.

Here is a beautiful gold necklace my father got me when we vacationed in Italy. It's a pretty flower and the chain is a twisted rope of gold and silver (though it's hard to see in the picture)

These are a pair of earrings a friend from elementary school gave me for a birthday.

This is a coral necklace my parents brought me when they went on vacation to Mexico.

Thebottom drawer is not as exciting, it just contains some old sunglasses in a case and a necklace.

I think I got this necklace at my First Holy Communion.

Here's some jewelery I keep in that white box next to the middle jewelry box. There's two silver bracelets, a cross pendant, and a necklace.

I love this pink and gold necklace my mom bought me for my eighth grade graduation.

This is a picture I keep on my bureau of my sister and I before a dance in eighth grade. On the picture are: a flower clip, a "Tiffany's" necklace (from the flea market), and some Mickey earrings form Disney World.

I keep both these purple earrings and this pearl ring (from when I was a baby) behind the picture.

Like Blair Waldorf (anyone watch Gossip Girl?), I have a little obsession with headbands!

I love that pink flowered necklace (from Claire's), the Mickey & Minnie necklace ( from Disney World), and my long pearl necklace (Claire's). I also have an obsession with pearls...they're just so elegant and feminine.





I love the elegance of this necklace (from Kohl's). I call it my Queen necklace, lol!



I adore this cute unicorn pendant that my grandmother gave me.

My pearl Mickey necklace! Disney & pearls!!! what more could I want! :)


Here's the inside of the wooden jewelry box on the left. The first shelf has a few necklaces.

The second and third shelves contain random costume jewelry and some other random jewelry in boxes, among other things.


In the top three drawers of the white jewelry boxi keep ponytails, bracelets, and ribbons for my hair.

Here's a pretty bracelet i found in there while taking these pictures. :)

The first drawer in the secon row contains old earrings I don't wear that often but for some reason or other, I keep them.
The next drawer contains little black hair ties and tiny hairclips.This one has old headbands in it.This dwaers contains some old necklaces.These two necklaces I made with my friend when I was younger.Here's some attemps at closer pictuers of some of my rings.

     Well...hopefully you made it to the end of this obnoxiously long post. I went a little crazy with the pictures because I wanted to make sure you could see everything. If anyone has any questions about anything I would be happy to answer them. I got most of the costume jewelry at places like Claire's, Forever 21, Kohl's, Target, Dots, Fashion Bug, etc. I also have a few things from other random stores I shop at like DEB, Torrid, Lane Bryant, flea markets, etc. If you have a specific question about where something is from or any other question feel free to comment below. You can also leave a request of what other types of posts you would like me to do. Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed! :)
